A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts.
Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, and may sometimes need to be removed if they are prevented from erupting in the mouth.
The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color.

There are any number of reasons to extract teeth, including tooth decay, impacted teeth, or advanced periodontal disease. If you have teenagers, this is the time to have their wisdom teeth evaluated because the roots are still developing. Extraction of wisdom teeth is essential for avoiding possible complications in the future.
